Stage 5: Chablis to Autun. It was another exiting day on the Tour de France as the sprint to the finish line hit almost 50 mph / 79 kph! Italy's Filippo Pozzato of Liquigas pushed his way passed Millar, Hincapie, Zabel, Bennati, Freire and others to win Stage 5.
Yellow Jersey Fabian Cancellara was chasing a Disovery Team rider toward the end of the stage when they both missed a turn and ended up in the grass. Though they stayed upright, Cancellara lost valuable seconds but, surprisingly, he still holds the Yellow Jersey at the end of the Stage.
Several crashes in the stage resulted in numerous cyclists going down, including today's favorite Alexandre Vinokourov.
